    Rust under hood air grille - repair kits?

    Hi Garry, The bonnet still looks to be available from the main stealers. I replaced the bonnet on the Zobelbraun Eta back in 2017, rather than pay lots cash for lots of man hours to fix a rusted bonnet which already had some poor previous repair work. No. Description Supp. Qty From Up To Part Number Price Notes 01 Hood 1 41611955456 $478.98 Most of the under bonnet rubbers, seals and insulation also look like they are still available if you choose to go down this route. Stay safe and best regards, Mick
  4. My Bronzitbeige Eta has at long last gone of for its long overdue full body restoration. Steve at Classic Bahnstormers has accepted the challenge and taken on the project. The intention is to run a restoration thread on the Forum. Thank you Steve. Regards, Mick
  5. This was delivered back in May 2020: Which contained one of these: Which is good for at least another 5 BHP Stay safe and best regards, Mick

    About to change engine oil

    Picked up 4 x 5 litres jugs of Castrol GTX 20W50 last year from Canadian Type for a very good price: Used one can on the Diamantschwartz Eta during the oil change. Stay safe and best regards. Mick

  10. Hi Tim, Good to hear from you. Do you have any E12 electric mirror bases I can use to make an E12 / E23 hybrid chrome mirror for my E28 Bronzitbeige Eta? Stay safe and best regards, Mick
  11. Had a wee rummage around and photographed some other E28 stuff I am collecting (hoarding) for the Bronzitbeige Eta: Glass moon roof: Also have the mounting plate, electric motor, gearbox, wiring loom, switches, interior sun shade and mounting hardware to conduct a full manual to electrical conversion. Will all require a good clean up and re-paint before installation. Interior Map light rear view mirror and wiring loom: Also acquired a pair of E23 chrome rear view mirrors: The intention is to do this: https://www.google.ca/url?sa=i&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FMarselsEvolutionE28BlackEagle%2Fposts%2Fhybrid-built-e12-e23-to-fit-e28-set-of-brand-new-original-bmw-mirrors-electric-%EF%B8%8F%2F2204709966267495%2F&psig=AOvVaw0K820gSVtB8Oy2NGtz3ckH&ust=1612582110305000&source=images&cd=vfe&ved=0CAIQjRxqFwoTCPDqhMvm0e4CFQAAAAAdAAAAABAX Looking for some E12 chrome mirror bases now.

    About to change engine oil

    Hey Lloydy, I did not know about Millers, I do now and their website is very informative, thanks for the top tip They have a supplier in the US, and are looking for additional distributers of which there are currently none in Canada Do I see a small retirement project in my future to go with E28.ca? Never say never, but that would be quite a lot of effort to get top quality oil. That said there is quite a strong classic car scene in Nova Scotia. Must be something to do with the large garages on large plots of land together with the long winters Stay safe and best regards, Mick

    High Rich, There is a guy in the US on mye28.com who has reproduced the 25 mm M5 front anti-roll bar mounts that are welded to the frame rails in place of the standard 17 mm / 18 mm / 19 mm anti-roll bars. The original 25mm M5 front anti-roll bar mounts (41.11.2.230.014) are no longer available (NLA) from the main stealers. The front 25mm M5 anti-roll bar (31.35.2.225.886), 25 mm rubber mounts (31.35.2.226.001) and support brackets (31.35.1.131.622) bolt straight up to these mounts. Link address: https://www.mye28.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=153356 The 18 mm M5 rear anti-roll bar (33.55.2.225.888) and mounting rubbers (33.55.2.225.890) bolts straight onto the existing mounting with the existing mounting brackets (33.55.1.129.195). The challenge is to find an M5 18 mm rear anti-roll bar, as they have been "no longer available" (NLA) from the main stealers for a couple of years now. Stay safe and best regards, Mick
  22. Hi Jez, Just like Christmas, only for E28's Acquired a set of reproduction M5 front anti-roll bar mounts (41.11.2.230.014) which are NLA, to go with the front 25mm M5 anti-roll bar (31.35.2.225.886), 25 mm rubber mounts (31.35.2.226.001) and support brackets (31.35.1.131.622): All now safely with Steve at Classic Bahnstormers for installation to the Bronzitbeige Eta. I fitted the 18 mm M5 rear anti-roll bar (33.55.2.225.888) and mounting rubbers (33.55.2.225.890) back in 2007 as it bolts straight onto the existing mounting with the existing mounting brackets (33.55.1.129.195). I have retrofitted the M5 rear anti-roll bar to all three Eta's before the rear anti-roll bar went NLA a couple of years ago. Received this parcel from Felipe in Spain back in early 2020: Which was well packaged: And contained a 6 litre spare fuel can: Also have a set of first aid kit mounting hardware: and First Aid Kit: To mount in the trunk of the Bronzitbeige Eta in due course: I have been collecting some stuff for the Bronzitbeige Eta for four years now and stashing it away for when it returns from Classic bahnstormers. I will take some more photographs and post them up. This will help me put together a "things to do" list for latter. Stay safe and best regards, Mick

    About to change engine oil

    I used from Castrol Magnatec 10W40 for many years with no issues until Castrol stopped supplying it. I had a brief excursion to Castrol 10W30 but my Eta's got noticeably noisier so switched to using Castrol GTX 20W50. Old oil technology for old engines. This Castrol website is quite informative: https://www.castrol.com/en_us/united-states/home/motor-oil-and-fluids/engine-oils/motor-engine-oil-brands/castrol-gtx-magnatec.html Really miss the old green Duckhams Q20W50 The deep green colour looked like oil, it smelt like oil, it felt like oil not sure of the taste though Stay safe and best regards, Mick
  24. This also arrived a few weeks back from Felipe in Spain: Which contained two of these: Which contained two new old stock Euro French headlight assemblies, "one left one and one right one" (reminds me of a song when I was in the scouts): Which will also be retrofitted to the Bronzitbeige Eta in due course. Stay safe and best regards, Mick
